For some reason I don't have a lockring tool. I am cleaning up my wheels, so I try borrowing one from my three friends who ride, none of them have one either. So I go to Performance because I have a gift certificate, they don't have any. I go to Rapid Transit, they don't have any tools at all. I go to Upgrade, nothing. I go to Yojimbos, he is out of them for some reason. I head all the way over to Cycle Smithy, and damn they have one! Only $20 for a piece of stamped metal. So I go home and take the lockring off, then I proceed to bend my chainwhip in half trying to take the cog off. So the moral of this story is that bikes are stupid and crappy Spin Doctor chainwhips are useless. Yojimbos had unmachined Deep-Vs in gold and black though which I liked.
